Didn't even see the doctor, only nurse practitioner. Paid $40 copay only to be told they won't prescribe meds, they will only perform procedures. Wish I could have my time and money back. I got zero for what I paid.

I have nothing but good things to say about Dr. Girardi. It seems that people will complain about just about anything these days. A woman complained to me the other day about two little girls writing peace and love with chalk on the sidewalk outside their home. CRAZY! When I went to see the doctor, I could tell he was very busy with a bunch of patients, so it doesn't surprise me that he didn't have enough time to make small talk with people. My guess is that he gets right to the point and some people find that rude. Also, they make it very clear they don't prescribe pills. He is a SPECIALIST. If you need pills, go see a regular doctor, or if your in so much pain, go to the ER. If you need to talk, go see a psychiatrist or dial up a friend. Being but-hurt that you didn't get a new Dr. friend or pills, sorry, but you have options. Remember, he is a very busy specialist that doesn't have time for small talk. Baxter Dunn.

Yes, Dr. Girardi can come across as a little arrogant, until you get to know him better. I've been a patient of his since 2001, and the procedures he's done on my cervical spine (facet joints) made my pain so much more tolerable...I was again able to function! Stay away from Deb Dennis at this office, however.

Dr. Girardi is a bit rough and a bit arrogant. But then I'm not going to marry him. I want my pain to stop and he does what he says. Yes he's very prideful, but then I guess he has a reason to be so. He's great at what he does and he is a no B.S. doctor. I've done the procedure he recommended and it was successful so far. He said it's not permanent and may need to be repeated, but not for a long time. If I can have a month of pain free life then I'm happy. The man is very intelligent!

Dr Girardi is very arrogant and rude. He was always in too much of a hurry to listen to my concerns.Seeing him several times for ineffective injections was a total waste of my time.

Do people want results or pity? Dr. Girardi is familiar with all people who need his assistance and is therefore very capable of providing care and assisting with their recovery. I had several unfortunate surgeries and therapies that did not help my pain. I had a total of three epidurals. He suggested I take a CD he gave me after the third one, and view it for some potential relief. I did and arranged to have a Neurostimular inserted as soon as possible. I have enjoyed 75- 80 % relief since

I saw Dr Girardi for an initial Visit due to a brain cyst, he spent spent 7 minutes with me, referred and MRI on my neck area as a possible culprit to my pain. Never did I get any results, follow up appt or anything. He told me to make them last as long as I could. Now 2 months later, past any refill date I can refill, I call in in an get a terrible response. The lady cleary hates listing to people suffering. Now since I made the pills last, I am hurting bad and suffering. Don't trust!

My only visit with Dr, Girardi, was well, not worth the drive to Ft.Collins. It lasted approximately 5-7 minutes, and frankly he is pretty rude. Then he wanted an MRI, and my insurance was not cooperative, so I will give his office that. But then I got an x-ray, and had it sent to them, and there was absolutely no response, and zero follow thru, on what it resulted in. They are terrible, and I have sought out another Doctor. I would not recommend them to anyone!!!!
